Every summer, Central Union Mission runs a residential camp for financially underprivileged children from all over the Washington, D.C. area at its beautiful 220-acre retreat and conference center in Brookville, Maryland.

Since 1934, Central Union Mission's Camp Bennett in upper in Montgomery County, Maryland has served as an idyllic retreat for underprivileged children, homeless men, and the community at large. For seven weeks each summer, the Camp is a week-long residential retreat for over 400 inner-city children. Children take part in swimming, singing, crafts, hiking, sports, a rope course and petting zoo, and are taught leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, kindness and compassion. Children who have never been away for the streets are able to experience the joys of a vacation away from home.

In ministering to children, our goal is to meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. We want to see these children well grounded in Biblical truth and walking with Jesus Christ in the fellowship of a local church and supporting ministries as they enter their teen years. There are many opportunities to volunteer, serve, provide financial support, or sponsor a needy child.
